Angelina Jolie got some new tattoos as the 46-year-old actress recently added a quote from astronomer Galileo Galilei on her forearm, and revealed the tattoo while out in NYC last week.
The design reads “Eppur si muove,” which translates to “And yet it moves” in Italian. The quote dates back to 1633, when Galileo was forced to recant his (true) statement that the Earth moves around the sun.
Part of a larger statement by the scientist, the phrase served as his defiant assertion that the truth would one day prevail.
Angelina has a lot of other tattoos inspired by her travels, charity work, children.
The newest addition sits above another philosophical quote — a line from a poem by Rumi that reads, “There exists a field, beyond all notions of right and wrong. I will meet you there.”
Angelina is currently in New York to celebrate her birthday with her family, amid her custody battle with ex-husband Brad Pitt.
During her trip, the “Maleficent” star grabbed a hot dog, visited art galleries in Brooklyn, and even stopped by ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller’s apartment.
Though all seven of her children joined her for the New York trip, Angelina Jolie arrived at Miller’s home without so much as a bodyguard.
